I have not got a picture but they are either side of the battery and around 20mm diameter black rubber grommet looking things.
You need to take the battery cover off and the covers off either side of that.
Should be pretty obvious then.
I blew mine clear with the hose pipe

The grommets are there to stop rodents entering that area .. they don't do that job very well i'm afraid .

They tend to block up with leaves and debris from trees ..

You can blow through them .. x2 each side of the battery or the unofficial fix .. push them out .. they will drop onto the fuel tank and disappear down the road leaving a much larger hole that will never block.

If they do block they will fill that area with water which will then enter the pollen filter and cause a wet carpet .. o/s and they will allow water to get into the grommet in the bulkhead there .

Up To you if you push them out or blow them out .


Images above show the very early type .. so upto 2000 model year with drain tubes .. after that it was just a single grommet ( 996 type ).

Thanks DeMort, I did find one hole, right hand side of the battery (N/S) about the size of a 10p bit, I discounted that as I was expecting to see a grommet but it may of been pushed out as you mentioned above, looks as if that was one of them but I have a better idea where to look now Smile

Thanks to you all Thumb
